Britney Spears Resurrected Her Schoolgirl Costume for "Carpool Karaoke"
The Late Late Show with James Corden's wildly popular Carpool Karaoke segment has lured the likes of Selena Gomez, Adele, and Michelle Obama to his passenger seat. Britney Spears, the latest to join the growing list of superstars to take part in the fun, belted out her hits "...Baby One More Time", "Toxic", and "Oops! ...I Did It Again" with Corden. For the grand finale, Spears ditched her very 2016 off-the-shoulder top for a very 1998 schoolgirl look similar to what she wore in the video for her debut single. (It's worth noting that Corden also opted to twin with Spears in a schoolgirl costume.)
The iconic, infamous costume is one of the best examples of how significant of a role fashion plays in the world of music. When you hear "...Baby One More Time", it's nearly impossible not to picture Spears dancing in her school uniform, almost two decades after it took the world by storm. Spears's participation in Carpool Karaoke was perfectly timed with the release of her new album Glory, which is available as of last night.
